Full Circle: Spring is on the way

Now, I'm not kidding myself, they are forecasting a major winter storm tonight and the park has already scheduled a three-hour delayed opening for tomorrow, up to an nch of ice is expected. but nonetheless...

Look what I encountered poking its head up in front of the visitors center today. This is the first crocus of the spring of 2007. Now this upstart may be in for a very rude awakening come tomorrow, but still, we've got our harbinger. A hint of spring has come to the battlefield. Can the real thing be far behind?

Here's hoping.
